If you love tradition, actually even if you don't, you should try to listen to Fado. This is a nice, cosy place. We even made friends from Turkey and Austria, as we were next to each other.

This small family run restaurant is a fantastic. A fun evening with plenty of food, wine and great music. The highlight for me was the 12 string guitarist... an amazing talent.

Marina and Duarte are truly amazing - the hospitality, the food, the atmosphere, the fado music. Everything was way beyond out expectations. It was like being in a Portuguese home and really connected with both Marina and Duarte. Will definitely be back. Highly highly recommended.More

What could we potentially have done wrong to deserve such a bad fado experience. While the food and service was good it took until 11.00pm to start the fado. Or something that should be the fado. The two guitar players asked the public to start...More
